Max concurrent ssh connections limit


Is these any limit on the maximum concurrent ssh connections that can initiated. Are these any potential performance issues going with un limited concurrent ss connections? Are there any guidelines on this, if so can you please share the details.

I think what you're looking for is in the man sshd_config, the MaxSessions and MaxStartups fields
